Winning The Division is not a Devil Ray

Choking in the playoffs is. Sour grapes you say? Well, perhaps. The Red Sox celebrated last night in a spray of carbonated grape and Bud Light. Jonathan Papalbon celebrated in his underwear, Schilling in his bathrobe, and Dustin Pedroia (a sullen little bastard), hardly cracked a smile while celebrating not at all. Papalbon- surely a member of the Klan, high-stepped and cavorted around with an empty case of beer on his head (or was it an empty 12-pack?). Someone forgot to tell Manny that they might clinch !st. place and he left before the celebration. He was spotted later in the evening at a downtown bar watching the celebration on television- he thought it was from 2004. On the field, Schilling gallantly searched for a teammate to hug-none obliged. A robotic Theo Epstein kept repeating himself, saying, we just need to win 11 games, 11 games, 11 games… We say,not happening, not happening, not happening…
